Columns for the front porch and trim for the front door

I have waited over a year and cannot decide what columns would be best for our front porch and what color for the trim of the front door. Right now the trim around the front door is white but it is thin. I plan on making it thicker but not sure if I should stay with the white or not. As for the columns, I am at a loss. 2 or 4, how wide, what style, 1/2 brick 1/2 white, I need help. Front Porch measurements are: 13 deep x 20 wide x 12 ft 6 in tall. Attached are a couple of pictures, 1 with just the metal post we have as supports, the others are just ideas. The columns will not be load bearing and were told we are able to put anything we want. Please give advice on the columns, 2 or 4, type, etc, and trim around the door. I sincerely appreciate the help.
